We began preparing the wedding after 2 years of dating. I always knew how and where my wedding would be. In my case it was lake Como. The Alps is my favorite place on Earth: mountains and water together create the best background for the most important day in your life. If it’s possible to capture this atmosphere with words – these words would be "magic", "elegance", "splendor"... and "love".

Choosing the date, we were guided by the magic "velvet season" (Russian term for one of the most favorable period for rest) in Italy and by astrological considerations, there are few favorable days in a leap year. So, our day forever will be the 2 of September.

Like many brides, I dreamed about wedding ceremony at Villa Balbianello. This is the most spectacular and popular wedding location on the lake, predictably, was already booked for this date 1 year before. But my wedding planner Victoria found an alternative . It was Villa Monastero , in the beautiful town Varenna on the opposite lakeshore. Then Victoria was able to organize a photo shooting at Villa Balbianello , so I can say that my wedding was where I really wanted. I need to mention my wedding planner’s time management competence. My wedding day was completely planed .All guest enjoyed every location and every moment without any stress or delay.

How did I find Victoria? I made my choice quickly. I didn’t consider any Moscow agency because of expensive services abroad, and I was choosing among international ones. I needed someone who spoke Russian and had had an experience in wedding organization on lake Como. This can be universal advice for those who are planning a wedding abroad. It’s better to hire Russian wedding planners who work and live in the country where your wedding will be.

I wrote to several agencies, and Victoria (the Agency WeddItaly) was the first to answer me with all details. I realized immediately that we thought in the same way. We were always in touch discussing the concept, locations and other details. And in the end we got the perfect plan for wedding.

Our project was to use as many location as we could to show all the beauties of this territory. We chose 3 locations: photo shooting at Villa balbianello, ceremony (and another photo session ) at Villa Monastero and finally a gala dinner in the panoramic restaurant in Valle d'Intelvi (Argegno town).

All our movements were not tiring at all for our 6 guests, all the time we were all together. There are a lot of advantages of making your wedding day only with close friends and parents. We spent two hours in each Villa, walking around and taking pictures. All movements were organized by a shuttle boat.

One of the important element in wedding plot is a “bride’s morning”. The main day was completely full of events, and we toke a day before for this exciting moment. Wedding photo shooting was not a new thing for me. The choice of photographer, locations, outfits were particularly important. I didn't want reportage photography or fine art style or other fashionable things. I called my old friend Maria Orlova: we worked together, we liked ideas and works of each other. And we didn’t choose a classic wedding photo session, we decided to make a fashion photo shooting.

So, my “bride’s Morning” began on a stunning historic Villa Palazzo Salis. My boudoir set (rose quartz as the main wedding color) was sewed by a designer Inna Shenkao. Boudoir filming continued with meeting bridegroom in the mountains. I like this version of the wedding story - starting day together, and not meeting already at the altar.

The ceremony was official with on-site registry (By the way, we were the first couple married officially at Villa Monastero). That was pleasant surprise: I thought that official registration could be only in the municipality. However, it depends on possibilities of wedding agency that prepares all documents without presence of couple and also on-site registry.

The concept of my wedding was determined by three things: classic, elegance and intimacy. Landscape of Italy, country of the Renaissance and the most picturesque nature made our wedding theme “Art called love” . We used Italian landscapes in our paper invitations and on the wedding cake.

We chose Victoria and her team because of her professionalism from the very first email. She sent us a detailed proposal letter with many venues to choose from - it was as if she had already started the planning for us! Our wedding planner went above and beyond to schedule our day meticulously, and were there every moment of the big day to make sure everything ran smoothly. It was obvious - they love what they do and they are incredible at it.

My wedding planning from the UK was made so easy with Victoria who helped with every single part of it. No detail was left unturned and the wedding planners on the day were discreet but so professional and lovely. I’ve had so many amazing comments from guests who said they don’t think they will ever go to another wedding like it.

Victoria gave realistic advice re costings whilst helping to create a dream wedding that fitted our budget. We didn't visit the location (although we felt like we did as Victoria visited options for us and sent us pictures & videos, including of our wedding menu tastings). We initially didn't think we needed a wedding planner despite not speaking any Italian, but quickly realised how valuable Victoria was with her advice saving us money and time.

Three main characteristics of Victoria’s work are: preciseness, high competence, ability to understand desires of the couple and provide best options according to their needs. I had tons of questions to Victoria - she answered them very quickly and detailed, gave a lot of advices, and by the way not only regarding the wedding itself, but on honeymoon trip as well. That was total Italian support for the whole period of preparation and being in the country.

We immediately liked Victoria’s passion and operability she started to work with. We should also say that Victoria has become a “virtual” member of our family for almost 6 months before our wedding We were in a contact every day discussing all necessary details. After the wedding when we came back to the hotel, we told to each other “Yes, We did it”. And We did it at a very high level.
